Encompassing every style and genre for guitar, pop in the broadest sense represents more of a sensibility and mindset for the contemporary guitarist.

The main skills required for a pop musician are focus and taste. Bringing forward the appropriate musical ideas in a group environment demands creativity, maturity and a broad musical palette to draw inspiration from.

Executing both simple and complex musical ideas to the incredibly high standard required for modern record production is the ultimate aim, and you will also need to gain the knowledge and ability to generate all the tones and sounds you’ve heard on recordings from the 50’s through to the present. So no pressure then…..
